BYOC From Drazil

1. If you could change your first name - I was almost Jesse. That was my great-grandmothers name and I wish my mom and had done it. Instead I got the 1960's short and sweet style names popular at the time...just shortening of a longer version or anything like that. I like the Latin flair but the fact that Tina means tiny or small has never applied and it has always been irritating to me. Jesse has history and more flair I think.

2. Why are man hole covers round? because those suckers are heavy and you don't want to have to roll them around to get them to fit just the right way...Have a look as you walk over the next one..they can be sideways, skewed, or upside down. It doesn't matter. because no matter which way you flip the lid they will settle in. a square or triangle or any other shape would require ages of alignment to get them just right. I love manhole covers-I take pictures of them when I travel and each town puts cool artwork on them. Don't forget to look down on vacation :)

3. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?
what I can only have one? Lots of things irritate me. I guess hypocrisy bugs me the most...people who tell me I am going to die if i eat hormone laced milk or corn syrup or other preservatives in my food but then smoke 'organic' cigarettes or Those who complain about how someone is mean and evil but in the process exhibit their own inability to show understanding or tolerance for what might be extenuating circumstances in another persons life.

Now the danger that someday down the road I will show my own hypocrisy...dangerous to put into words these things.

4. If you could be a car - what would it be? Post a pic if you can.

Well I couldn't decide you many things to take into consideration here. I finally went with a fun bus...I wouldn't want to be a sports car because they only hold two people. old lady...I went for the party option. I can take you all along. We can crank up some music and install a bar...everyone on board for the party bus! and bonus...its green :)

5. What's the biggest thing you learned from a blog this week or which blog spoke to you the most this week off the top of your head?

Well the biggest impact was Yana's and Amanda's comment on my blog when I was stressing out over my job change. As far as ideas, commiseration, recipes, meal ideas...goodness I get something from each and every blog that I read every week. I am also surfing you all for non-lapband blogs to spice my life up. home decorating, photography, knitting...blogs can suck time but they sure are fun aren't they?
